New Year, New Mug
Ready to drop 2016 like it’s hot? Get in on the very first ELGL Mug Exchange. Your choice of beverage and time to imbibe is up to you, but share the fun by gifting your fellow govie with something awesome. In short, you’ll be sent information for another exchange participant and that will be the person you’ll gift with a mug. Someone different will be given your information and will shop for you.
The mug swap is a fun way to connect with others in the local government world and add to your own collection at home or the office.
How it will go down: Any current ELGL member can use the super quick Elfster signup by December 3. We want to make sure everyone who sends a mug gets a mug, so please don’t sign up unless you are going to participate FOR SURE. If you’ve got an Elfster account already, feel free to use your own and just join “ELGL Holiday Mug Exchange”. Elfster is cool because you can suggest what you’re into and they can ask anonymous questions to help them choose the perfect pitcher. Watch your email like a hawk because the match will be made on Dec 3 and you’ll be sent info for another person. Shop, rifle through town stocks of giveaways, painstakingly hand paint a village seal onto a ceramic stein, etc. Ship your item before December 19. Wait impatiently for your loot to arrive.
When you receive your mug be sure to tweet or share a picture using #ELGLMugs!
